Before our pastor preaches or teaches a class of any sort, the pressure that is on him is almost visible. And understandably so. I haven’t ever preached, but I somehow know how he feels. sortakinda.
But after whatever he’s teaching has drawn to a close, and some of that pressure is gone, he takes on a new…form. ifyoucanputitthatway. He tends to be very good-humoured, or at least as long as he remains in public. And at least he seems good humoured, to everyone but the “victim.” That’snotafunposition.
Well, to bring guilt against myself, I remember quite well some things he had to say about blogs. Let’s see if I can remember… (I’ll have to paraphrase).
The subject of blogs had somehow come up after a study. “He thinks it’s ridiculous to have a blog. He doesn’t read them.”
Myself, and the only other girl there who had a blog at that time, began to fear lest he should name us as guilty parties. Atleast,Idid.I’mnotsureabouther.
“People who have blogs should turn off the computer monitor while they type, so they can look at their reflection. It’s like they’ve got to publish their most private thoughts for the whole world to see, like an online journal of everything that’s going on in their life.”
“They can set up a mirror next to the computer, and type while they look at themselves, ‘I had a thought today, as I sat gazing at myself….'”
It went on, but my memory banks are leaky. But you saw his point. He thinks blogs are stupid.
